Question: I would like to get feedback about a job description. The job is for a secretary at a real estate office. The job has been open for several months.
A portion of it states: “You need to be okay with being micromanaged and prepared to continuously check in. You need to be "thick skinned."
I showed this job description to a friend who wanted to apply. When she asked if I had considered it, because the salary is about $10,000 more than I make now, I said that I wouldn't apply because it sounds as though you'd have to put up with a lot. She said that she didn't get that impression from the job description and that maybe "thick skinned" means you need to be versatile. I disagree. Just interested in what everyone else thinks. -- Anonymous
